New Calibrationhouse capabilities delivers improved on-site NHS biomed calibration – Digital Health Technology News

Calibrationhouse, a leading provider of UKAS-accredited calibration services, has announced a new suite of extensive calibration capabilities to enhance and streamline their equipment calibration for the National Health Service (NHS) and wider healthcare industry.

Calibrationhouse currently serves 114 NHS Trusts across the UK. These new capabilities represent a strategic expansion of Calibrationhouse’s services, making it easier and faster for hospitals and other medical facilities to fulfil their calibration requirements.

A key strength of the new capabilities is the ability to calibrate ventilator testers on-site at healthcare facilities, a service that will drastically reduce equipment downtime. Previously, ventilator testers had to be shipped abroad for calibration, resulting in lengthy down times.

Now, Calibrationhouse’s engineers can bring their expertise directly to hospitals, providing accurate and reliable calibration in minutes rather than weeks.

Andrew Simpson, Manager of Calibrationhouse, said: “Being able to offer on-site calibration for ventilator testers is revolutionary for our NHS and healthcare customers.

“In the past, sending these essential devices abroad meant huge delays. Now, by delivering this service directly to hospitals, we’re minimising downtime and ensuring critical equipment is quickly back in use.

“Our goal is to make calibration more convenient and stress free, and this is a major step in that direction.”

This enhancement is part of a broader expansion of Calibrationhouse’s services, which includes the calibration of force gauges, temperature calibrators, test weights, precision scales, thermal hygrometers, calibration syringes and conductivity meters at the customers premises. In addition, calibration of high-pressure gauges is now available at the Calibrationhouse lab in Peterlee on a five working day from receipt turnaround time.
These new capabilities allow NHS healthcare facilities to have greater flexibility and reduce the time that critical equipment is out of service.
